The #MeToo movement made waves last year when it lay bare the frequency of sexual harassment within Hollywood an other industries. While Harvey Weinstein and Rose McGowan may be the names most closely associated with the social movement, #MeToo’s repercussions continue to be felt far and wide.
Most recently, the talent manager considered party responsible for the success of stars like Halle Berry and Taraji P. Henson has also come under fire. And now has essentially fired himself.
70 year old Vincent Cirrincione was the principal of Vincent Cirrincione Associates VCA until as recently as yesterday! He announced his decision to close amid serious allegations of harassment.
The Washington Post first reported the allegations, made by 9 women of color, against Cirrincione just last week. Eight African-American women and one Asian woman described how Cirrincione portrayed himself as a champion of young women of color in Hollywood but was instead a predator who demanded sex in exchange for exposure.
